it is buying to pump these markets up. rumors that it has stopped buying treasurys altogether, now just mortgage-backed securities. news just hours later that jobless claims in this country were weighed down, which seemed to indicate things in this economy really are looking up. good, right? to a point. who needs training wheels if you can ride this recovery just fine without them? is the fear that training wheels are gone or going. and wall street is selling. because it is on its own. it is time for wall street to just suck it up and grow up. if you are basing our bilateral the fed is buying, you might want to think about retiring. i get the sentiment. the government should never have gone into the propping up market business to begin with, but nevertheless he did. hinting that things are good enough now work could be to take some of l.a. is rattling them.

your little greedy hard. i think that there is this talk that it is beginning. at the very least this 85 billion a month that has really been propping up the street is going away or being shifted around, maybe they have already stopped buying treasury notes and bonds and the sort of thing. that's why rates are climbing. >> wall street has gotten ahead of itself. the fact of the matter is as much as the president would like to believe the economy is great and everything is roaring back, with tons of people unemployed and underemployed and now with obamacare leading employers to up move people to shorter hours and lower average allen to cut hourly wages, and i don't think things are all that rosy out there. the same time wall street seems fascinated by how much stimulus

and capering and so forth in seems to be forgetting the fundamentals. neil: i always wondered if push came to shove and the federal reserve was not there, the government was not involved in propping markets up and throwing cash at them, of the whole 85 billion a month or gone, how much higher really what interest rates be in the face of the very slowdown in the very hiccuping that you alluded to when it came to walmart and what is going on at kohl's and macy's in cisco with these layoffs. >> i don't see the effect. i just don't think these near term machinations of the fed had made nearly as much difference as folks in washington what have you believe. neil: hanging on the fed for the markets every move seems to make them think that without that interest rates would be a lot higher. you seem to be saying that is not the case. >> i agree with you. i don't think they have that

>> you have to get by with fewer of them. they will not take cutbacks. you just have fewer journalists and get better journalists doing a better job which is not hard to do if you have proper editors. with great respect, i don't think he knew how to be a publisher. the fact is, you have to know the person, no how to impose a certain professional discipline on journalists without compromising your integrity. can be done, but it is like anything else, being a brain surgeon or a television host. you have to have experience. neil: it would be his speech. think about it. he has it. there are no minority shareholders. it is his baby. so it does leave a lot of wiggle room for him to do what he wants. what do you think he does? >> now i am getting -- you are luring me out of an area where i
